Toward a United Nations Declaration: The International Year of Glass 2022

The International Commission on Glass (ICG), along with the Community of Glass Associations (CGA) and ICOM-Glass are promoting a United Nations International Year of Glass for 2022.

It will underline the technological, scientific and economic importance of glass — that transparent and enabling material underpinning so many of our technologies and which can facilitate the development of more just and sustainable societies to meet the challenges of globalization. It is also an important medium for art and its history is shared with that of humankind.
